Hey Chandler -- as of today, you have a new burger joint.
California-based The Habit Burger Grill opened the doors of its second Valley location today.
Sitting just south of Ray Road, east of the I-10, it's dangerously close to another California-based chain, In-N-Out Burger. An interesting location choice, but hey I guess that's what some would refer to as "cojones"?
The Habit Grill has been churning out burgers for over 40 years using only fresh quality ingredients -- and they aren't bad. We might even consider skipping the line at the other place for a Teriyaki burger and an order of sweet potato fries from the Habit.
